Specialities/Research Interests/Skills

I have an international reputation and strong network of industry and research links within the fields of broodstock management and egg/larval quality in farmed marine fish; formulating and testing fish and live-prey diets, and biochemical quality indices in salmon, cod, turbot, halibut and sea bass.

Brief History

I graduated in Zoology with Marine Zoology from Bangor University in North Wales in 1978, followed by an industry-sponsored PhD (“Egg-quality in Captive Turbot, Scophthalmus maximus L.) awarded by Liverpool University in 1981.

I have eight years ‘hands on’ employment experience in commercial marine hatcheries in Shetland, Norway, France and the Isle of Man, plus a further 19 years of industry-relevant and site-based research within the field of marine aquaculture (Port Erin Marine Laboratory, Isle of Man; NERC Unit of Aquatic Biochemistry and the Institute of Aquaculture in Stirling; NAFC Marine Centre, Shetland).

I also have many years’ experience as an instructor, teacher, lecturer and supervisor of Aquaculture and Fisheries vocational, undergraduate, postgraduate and research students at the Universities of Swansea, Stirling; La Laguna (Tenerife), and the NAFC Marine Centre.
